The Missing Link Between Stuxnet & Flame

You can read the latest analyis I've been doing for the BBC about Flame here. It's based on information made available by Kaspersky, a summary of which you can read here. In short, it looks as if some source code wassared by the developers of Flam eand Stuxnet, from an early version of Stuxnet.
